Toby Kincaid loves being the junior librarian in his hometown of Sandy Lake, Ohio. He spends his days surrounded by books and chatting with the library patrons. He especially adores the head librarian, Mr. Miggles, who is kind, witty, knowledgeable about everything, and hopelessly addicted to Christmas. Sean Miggles is also pretty cute—especially for an older guy who wears ties and suit pants every day.
But Sean keeps himself at a distance, and there’s a sadness about him that Toby can’t figure out. When Sean is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he gives up without a fight. Toby realizes that he alone can save the library—and their head librarian.
Toby will need to uncover the darkness in Sean’s past and prove to him that he deserves a second chance at life and at love too. And while Christmas miracles are being handed out, maybe Toby will get his own dearest wish—to love and be loved by Mr. Miggles.

When I first read Merry Christmas, Mr. Miggles the emotion in the story absolutely caught and kept my attention. I couldn’t put the story down and had to finish it in one sitting.
Tristan Wright does a lovely job bringing Mr. Miggles, Toby Kincaid, and the myriad of supporting cast to life. He infuses emotion to the story in all the right places, and does an overall good job.
This story utterly captivated me, and I’ll admit, I had a very different performance in my head of all the parts and characters when I read it. Wright’s performance is more understated than how I pictured it would be. It was a more quiet sort of performance that grew on me the longer I listened.
In the end, I was happy I’d listened to it, and would definitely listen to it again.
